How many babies are you able to care for?
Our maximum number of babies is 12. However, the Lord is calling us to quality care not quantity care. We must insure that we have the qualifed staff, and the finacial support, to take on a new baby before we make the decision to bring one into the home.
At what age will the babies grow out of GBH? Where will they go?
We will evaluate each case individually and decide what is best for that child. Ideally a child would be potty trained and able to dress itself before leaving. If there is space available they would likely transition over to the Children's Home.
Do you have full-time staff or volunteers? Where do they come from?
We have several full-time YUGO missionaries who work in the home. We also plan to have YUGO interns; short-term volunteers who will spend 2-6 months serving at GBH. We have full/part-time, paid, Mexican staff as well.
Where do the babies come from?
For different reasons, the Mexican authorities will remove a baby from the home or hospital. If no suitable relative is found, the Mexican Social Services (DIF) will then place the baby in an orphanage. The baby remains a ward of the state while in our care.
Can babies be adopted?
Mexican nationals can adopt Mexican babies through the DIF. As it stands now, international adoptions are rare and difficult. GBH has no control or influence over the adoption process governed by the state of Baja California.
How are you funded?
GBH is a ministry of YUGO Ministries, a non-profit organization in the U.S. We receive no funding from the Mexican government. All our funding comes from the generous donations of individuals like you.
What is your current need?
Our full capacity monthly budget is about $8K. Our current need is for consistent, monthly financial support, which will fund the operations of the home.
